She further added she is not establishing L'avyanna Skin Naturals for a short time business but for a life time business that can stand the test of time.
May Ikora said: "I am looking for to more people patronizing me because this is not a short term cash and carry business for me but more of a long term business. I want to see L'avyanna grow into a franchise and be the next body shop store in your neighborhood and Africa at large. I am not looking forward for profit but an African brand over time."‎
"Although we are based in the United Kingdom (UK), but I am looking forward to manufacturing my products in Nigeria. My products are made from natural oils which can be found in Nigeria. I am looking forward to having a store back home where people can walk in to at any time and shop for themselves, friends or loved ones."
May has worked in many African and European countries on the area of Gender and Peace building with organisations like the United Nations (UN) and the Kofi Annan Peacekeeping Institute. She has a PhD in Law from the University of Hull, UK where she also taught Law students. She continues to advocate for the empowerment of young women through her Raising Girls Project in Nigeria.
